Biden's Department of Energy plans to mete out "the maximum civil penalty" against manufacturers that "knowingly distribute" illicit light bulbs which violate their new efficiency standards.
From Politico, "While everyone was yelling about gas stoves, the incandescent light bulb went away":
It's lights out for the incandescent bulbs that people have known, changed and singed their hands on for 140 years.With the Biden regime jailing their opposition en masse, transifying kids, threatening to start WWIII and throwing open the borders, certain issues have to take a back seat.
Over a decade ago, though, the light bulb issue shone bright for tea party conservatives and GOP presidential hopefuls, who accused Democrats of trying to limit consumers' choices.CFL bulbs -- the alternative at the time -- literally induced migraine headaches in otherwise healthy people. When they broke, a hazmat team was needed to clean up the mercury they released.
Republican lawmakers even succeeded in passing legislation to block the Obama administration from carrying out the new efficiency standards — sometimes to the irritation of large light bulb manufacturers that had spent big bucks preparing for them.Trump blocking the ban was one of the highlights of his presidency.
DOE completed the action last April, but full enforcement of the rule is set to begin Aug. 1. The transition away from the inefficient bulbs has been underway for more than a year, as the department provided flexibility for manufacturers and retailers to comply with the new standard.Over half the country still appears to be using mostly incandescents.
Forty-seven percent of U.S. households reported using LED bulbs for most indoor lighting in 2020, according to the Energy Information Administration, up from only 4 percent in 2015.It's still not clear what incandescents will survive this ban. There's some exemptions for certain specialty bulbs but I can't find a definitive list anywhere.
Incandescents are still the best bulbs there are as the light they produce is 100 on the color rendering index -- meaning it's identical to sunlight -- whereas the best LEDs are only around 90.
Nonetheless, as is now the norm, the plebs must be made to suffer to advance the "liberal world order."
